I'm a conservative in his late twenties, working in IT looking for a new part of the country to move and work in. I've previously lived in Bozeman, MT, Columbus, Ohio and most recently Minneapolis, MN.

Minneapolis is not bad, but I'm thinking of trying something new over the next year or so. Living in MT made me fall in love with the mountains, so having mountains around or nearby would be great.

Some places I'm thinking of based on the names I've seen pop up here and in YouTube videos in no particular order:

Raleigh, NC
Chattanooga, TN
Fort Worth, TX

I've been to the south before (LA and KY). I love the food and energy down there. The people seem really warm and friendly too and I miss that.

I'm also really curious about living in New Hampshire. I don't mind living in cold weather at all, as long as there's someplace I can go ski. I'd like to have a family one day and it seems like a great state for that. I also kind of like that it doesn't seem to show up on a lot of polls or lists that I've come across, so it could be a hidden gem.

I'm also open to any new suggestions.

Well........New Hampshire has more of a libertarian streak. Google - the Free State Project.

Raleigh/Fort Worth seem to have a lot of transplant populations, so if you are looking for conservative, you may or may not find what you are looking for. Given the large shift in population numbers.

The old South was a lot more conservative than the new South. Doesn't make it better or worse, just different.

Chattanooga would probably be your best bet for "conservative" - just on the fact that it's really not known for having a lot of transplants.

If you liked Bozeman, and since you're already looking at Tennessee, check out Cookeville. It's about the same size as Bozeman, it's an hour east of Nashville and 1.5 hours north of Chattanooga, and it checks off all of your criteria. There's lots of IT jobs with SAIC, a large government contractor that recently set up its technology integration gateway in downtown Cookeville and is quickly on its way to hiring 300+ IT workers and support staff.

Within 45 minutes of Cookeville are over 100 waterfalls, 1200 miles of lakeshore, a dozen state parks, whitewater rivers, and lots of other outdoor sports. The town itself is attractive, thriving, and full of warm, welcoming people. The cost of living is low, too.

Check out Greenville SC near the Blue Ridge mountains. Young singles love the downtown area.

VisitGreenvilleSC.com

Roanoke Virginia is another idea.

You'll definitely want to avoid cities like Washington and Portland with a lot of violent liberal antifa members.

Recently in Portland, antifa thugs attacked a conservative Asian-American, Andy Ngo, and induced a brain hemorrhage.

Liberals can certainly be violent. Extremists of both sides can be of course. But yes, if you're a conservative, I'd avoid the coasts. Stick to flyover country.

I’d say all of them - Raleigh, Fort Worth and Chattanooga, trust me you’ll be fine in either.
